Student Council Opens NE CACE Meeting with Prayer

Student CouncilOn March 10th, the Saint Benedict Academy Student Council commenced the CACE (Chief Administrators of Catholic Education) assembly at the Radisson in Manchester, New Hampshire by leading the group in morning prayer. The group began with singing The Servant Song. Following the song, Student Council recited a few readings from the Bible and ended with a beautiful prayer of leadership and Catholic identity.

The Council also shared the reasons why they love Catholic schools with the NE CACE group. In celebration of the Most Reverend Peter A. Libasci, Tenth Bishop of Manchester’s visit to Saint Benedict Academy in honor of its 125th Jubilee, the fifth and sixth grade classes presented him with a “Top Ten” list of Why We Love Catholic Schools.  The list is as follows:

Power of Prayer

Bully-Free Zone

Education is Priceless

We’re Always Voted “Best Dressed”

Smallest Classes=Learning Fastest

Don’t Mention Detention

Home Phone Calls are Quite Small

All of Our Teachers are Cheering in the Bleachers

Parents Take the Time to help us Write, Read, and Rhyme

Teachers Teach us To be God’s Preachers

 The audience was filled with Catholic leaders from all over New England. It was a great opportunity for our 5 members of the SBA Student Council to be involved in such an important meeting.
